'Dealing with the past'
.
An autumn shot of the Mauritshuis with on the right hand side the office of the prime minister.

Yesterday the Guardian reported that 'Canada confronts colonial past as Halifax removes statue of city's founder' which was removed bevause 'in 1749, the city of Halifax’s founder Edward Cornwallis offered rewards for ethnic cleansing'.
.
It's not only in Canada that's asking questions about it's past. In the US many confederate monuments have been removed* laying bare tensions within the population.
.
The Dutch past has some hot issues as well drawing battle lines through society. One of these tensions was highlighted when the prime minister sent a tweet about the removal of the Maurits* buste in the lobby of the Mauritshuis museum. With the prime minister accusing the museum of rewriting history with today's knowledge. The fact that the buste was actually replaced by a statue was lost in the communication highlighting the tension and role it place in belonging and identity. .
